Recently, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office halted the application of a home school graduate because he did not have an accredited high school diploma. Fortunately for Texas families, Texas law not only states that no home school diploma can be accredited by the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission, but also that a home school diploma is equivalent to a public school diploma.
To address the situation, THSC President Tim Lambert wrote a letter to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office supporting the former student, clarifying that home schools are legally equivalent to private schools in the state of Texas, and urging the office to end its discriminatory practice.
Since 1986, THSC has fought to Keep Texas Families Free. You can rest assured, THSC will stand by members to continue protecting the rights of home school families. Is your home school family protected? Join today!
